Last year, University of Iowa student Dan Olinghouse left for Egypt to study political science.
He ended up taking part in political history.
After returning to Cairo on Jan. 21, the Ankeny native took part in the protests that led to President Hosni Mubarak’s departure. From Iowa on Friday, he shared in the Egyptian people’s victory.
“I’m really excited for all the people in Egypt,” Olinghouse said Friday. “I’m really hopeful they continue to stick it out and get the things they need.”
